More people, more active outdoors.
Outdoor active recreation makes a huge contribution to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities in Western Australia. Every day, Western Australians enjoy our State's unique outdoor lifestyle — whether walking, riding, exploring, exercising,
paddling or engaging in a range of outdoor adventures activities.
In 2019, DLGSC conducted an extensive consultation process with a range of government, commercial and recreation sector stakeholders to develop a framework for outdoor recreation in Western Australia: More People More Active Outdoors. This framework guides local and regional outdoor recreation
planning to maximise the benefits for all Western Australians.
DLGSC has since engaged with the Western Australian recreation sector through a series of workshops across state-wide locations. Engaging with key stakeholders at state and local government, recreation industry organisations, service providers, clubs
and participation groups, is essential to determine the best strategies to support and enhance the sector.
To drive the More People More Active Outdoors framework, DLGSC is committed to delivering outcomes that have been condensed into the following four key areas:
